Welcome to Garment School! This is a 6 week course taught by our very own Tina. This multi week course will explore different types of fabric, pattern reading and garment construction. You will make 3 well constructed garment pieces that you are sure to love for years: the Bantam Top, Saltmarsh Skirt, and Heron Wrap Jacket. (Optional: can sub the Bantam Dress for either the skirt or wrap jacket if you wish) These patterns are offered in up to a size 18 (35in waist, 42in bust). Moderate size alterations can be made.
Prerequisite skills: Are familiar with your machine - can thread it and change settings without assistance. Beginning in July, we strongly encourage all Garment School students to take Sewing Skill Building 4 and Sewing Skill Building 5 as a prerequisite to Garment School 1 and 2. Both are also taught by Tina and provide a foundation of skills that once under your belt, will allow you to focus on the fitting and finishing details of your Garment School garments. If these classes happen to be sold out, we hold a couple spots for Garment School Students, so we will contact you once you sign up for Garment School to discuss your options.
